GLM auto start/shutdown under Windows 7

GLM 1.4.1 under Windows 7 x64

I have these little annoyances with GLM, and wonder if i missed a setting, or otherwise can ask for a feature request here :mrgreen:

1) The .glm file extension is associated to GLM, so by putting a glm file in the Startup folder, GLM will autostart.
My issue/feature request: can GLM startup in Minimized mode? To save pressing the GLM minimize button on each Windows startup.

2) At Windows 7 shutdown, GLM prevents the shutdown process:

"Waiting for GLM. This program is preventing Windows from shutting down".
The feature request: can GLM just end its process when requested by the Windows Operating System?
So no user intervention needed?

Hello,

I have forwarded your questions to our GLM development team. :)

Hi again,

1) At the moment no, but we will notice your request.

2) We were able to replicate the problem on some computers. Some seem to shut down just fine. We will look at it more closely.

Any news on this issue? Still happening to me on GLM v1.5.0 on both Windows 7 and 8.1. Have to create a shortcut with shutdown /f /t 0 to get around this, which is kind of awkward.

Hi,

Unfortunately this is a very rare problem and there is no fix available for it.
